No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 - Title I
The purpose of Title I is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
- Meeting the educational needs of low-achieving children in our highest-poverty schools, limited English proficient children, migratory children, children with disabilities, Indian children, neglected or delinquent children, and young children in need of reading assistance.
- Providing greater decision-making authority and flexibility to schools and teachers in exchange for greater responsibility for student performance.
- Providing children an enriched and accelerated educational program, including the use of schoolwide programs or additional services that increase the amount and quality of instructional time.
- Affording parents substantial and meaningful opportunities to participate in the education of their children.
Private School Students Qualifying for Title I Services
Annual Private School Meeting: Annually all private schools in Contra Costa County and surrounding counties are invited to attend an informational meeting and to participate in initial consultation regarding participation in Title I, Title II, and Title III services. The next meeting is scheduled for June 3, 2015. Contact Lorie O'Brien at email@example.com or Marietta Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Private School Services for Students: Title I requires that local educational agencies (LEAs) provide eligible private school children with Title I educational services or other benefits that are equitable to those provided to eligible public school children. Title I services for eligible private school children must be developed in consultation with private school officials. Eligible students enrolled in private schools receive Title I, Part A services; private schools do not receive Title I, Part A funds. The public school district, where the students reside, is responsible for making these services available for students in private schools.
